Love, infatuation, commitment and addiction — the brain chemistry involved in these four experiences may have more in common than you think.
To learn more about that chemistry and what neuroscientists know regarding how the brain sorts pleasure from discomfort, check out the March 18 Science on Tap event, featuring Oregon Health and Science University neuroscientist Larry Sherman.
Sherman’s talk, “The Neuroscience of Pleasure,” will outline how neurochemical changes in the brain can affect our behavior, including who, what and how we love.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. in Alberta Rose Theater. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Cost is $15 general admission or $10 for students with ID.
